What housing would we be able to live in and how many bedrooms? We only have one kid and the Mr. is a Sgt. He's gonna be in 3rd CEB...if that matters. We live in a 2 bedroom house now so I'm thinking it would be the same.
What would you recommend? We have no pets. My husband wants to live on base since he might be deploying and he doesn't feel comfortable for us to be off base. My daughter is only 2 so I'm not concerned about being near a school or anything.
Why not just call the housing office and ask them what area's you might be offered. Then come back here and ask for info on those communities. You will most likely wind up on the Condor end of base which is really close to Condor Elementary.
Condor side of base has the majority of the housing options for a E5 with only one child. You'll likely get a 2 bedroom. I have a nephew on the base right now who is a Sgt with 1 son and they placed them in sunflower terrace. It's 2 story, 2 bed, 1.5 bath... if that helps.
I just called and they didn't tell me about the areas. They said its a 3-5 month wait and we would get a 2 bedroom. The 3 bedroom waiting is 0-2 months. Now I need to figure out where to go live while we wait for a house on base. :/ ugh! This is so complicating.
Bug them and youll have a house in 3 weeks. Tell them you are homeless with your daughter and you need a home asap. We did and had a house in 3weeks. It works. Ask them to put u in a 3 bedroom onbase since there is no waitlist for them. He is an E-5 so I think he rates a 3 bedroom anyway (it used to be like that anyhow)
I know several people who live there and none of them have had a single problem. The places are not bad. Small side, yes, but not rundown and nasty. You jist make the best of what you get, and if you are not a person who seeks out drama, then you wont have any issues, if you a person who strives to be in drama, then you will be fine.
